Kids’ Club Review by Matthew: The meltdown

The meltdownThe meltdown, by Jeff Kinney

I enjoyed reading this book because it was very funny especially when there was a big snowball fight between Lower Surrey Street and Upper Surrey Street. Greg Heffley is always coming up with crazy ideas that get him in trouble! I would recommend this to kids aged 8 and up.

I crawled onto the bank and collapsed, exhausted. From the dirt, I looked up in amazement at four dogs staring down at me. Was I dreaming? Had I gone mad?

This book is about Greg loses his friend Rowley because Rowley has his own girlfriend Abigail so he has no friends. It says that this kid named Fregley was lonely and Greg’s mum saw that as well so she invited Fregley to Greg’s house. things did turn out good because Greg thought that he could be his wingman and his friend. I liked this book because of the funny part in the book saying me not know how to spell.

This book is about Greg having a date and trying to be with this girl named Abigail. He invited his friend Rowley to the date but he was starting to have chicken pox under his chin so he had to wear the big scarf to cover it. At the date it seemed to turn out that Rowley and Abigail instead of Greg and Abigail. This book will tell you how it is to be in a date.

This book is about Greg having to stay home because of a snowstorm. He had to stay indoors for a long time when it was christmas… It was a bit creepy to stay home because his mom found this old toy elf that watches you if your naughty or nice. They say that if your naughty or nice the elf will go to santa and tell him. The book also says that Greg and his friend had tried to put up these signs in the school wall in the snowstorm but it ruined the signs then it became these green blobs so they tried to rub it of but it didn’t work then an adult saw them so they were abit in trouble. They became wanted but the pictures of Greg and his friend Rowley were not there faces so they were in big trouble… I liked this book because it explains what it feels like in a snowstorm lasting for days.

In this book, Greg tries to make money by making a film with Rowley. The movie is called Night of the nightcrawlers , but when they were making the film the geese come to eat the gummy worms. Greg and Rowley hid under the table and Rowley.
I like this book because it’s very funny.

Kids’ Club Review by Isla: Double down

Syndetics book coverDouble down by Jeff Kinney.

In the book Greg wants to go to Mariana’s party because it’s legendary and her parents don’t care what they do as long as they stay in the basement. Last year Mariana invited so many people that it flooded out into the yard and the cops had to come and shut it down. This year she was only allowed to invite students from the band and that’s why Greg wants to join the band, but he didn’t think very well because Mariana was in the wooden section but he chose a French horn so he wasn’t in her band section. But Rowley got invited and Greg came up with the idea of a two headed monster Halloween costume so he could go with Rowley to the party.

I like this book because the parts of the story are kind of linked together.

The book is very good because Greg gets scared that he might go to jail because he put up posters for games. Then it rained and he took the poster down. The poster was green. Then they left green marks. He gets in trouble from principal Roy. He told principal Roy about the games and posters.

5 stars.
